I’m not really sure why people are so surprised it passed. An almost identical proposition, Prop 22 passed in 2000 with 61% of the vote. And in 2004, San Francisco began doing same-sex marriages and shortly thereafter the California Supreme Court put an end to it.
It disgusts me beyond belief…if California is supposedly a liberal state and a garbage prop like this gets passed, what hope is there for the majority of the country? How can something that discriminatory pass?
I’m ridiculously happy about Obama AND the Massachusetts ballot questions (No, Yes, Yes — it happened!) but this Prop 8 business infuriates me.
Right now I’ve never been prouder to be from Massachusetts.Filed under Current Events (other), Local & State Politics, Local News, Politics (general) | Comment (1)
